"My grandparents were Fred W. and Josie Park. They moved to Fluvanna
from their ranch in Borden County about 1923. Fred owned the Fluvanna
garage pictured. He and/or his son-in-law and daughter, T.C. and Ola Hoy,
also had investment and/or employment at the old Fluvanna
Mercantile. Fred and Josephine are buried there with their daughters, Lorena
Park and Sophronia Hamilton. I visited there as a child in the 1940's. My mother
was Jo (Trixie) Park, their youngest child." - Dorothy Melton Knight
